    Help with eno housefly mod.

    I have a eno housefly and would like to reinforce the ridgeline tie outs. What should I use, and do I need to seal the spots I reinforce.

    How are you setting up the suspension? There are any number of ways to set it up that will lessen the tension on the pull outs. Take a look at some of the options from the Ultimate Hang and tarp ridge line offerings from the cottage vendors. I'm a fan of a continuous ridge line under the tarp so I can hang stuff from it but that's what works for me.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    I use a continuous ridgeline and the method described on ultimate hang. I just noticed that the ridge line tie offs are stressing the silnylon. There is no re enforcements on the eno like there is on my other tarps.

    Both of my ridgeline tie out points are pulling, I am getting ready to send it back for repair. This is a perfect thread.
